More About The Vaccine
The following helpful information has been provided by Public Health - Seattle & King County. If you have questions, visit www.kingcounty.gov/vaccine.
Recently, the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine for ages 5 and older. The COVID-19 vaccines have been tested by the FDA and independently to confirm their safety and extreme effectiveness. However, at this time, only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for pediatric use.
COVID-19 vaccines are free and available regardless of health insurance, citizenship, or immigration status. Under law, your provider cannot charge you for an office visit to receive the vaccine.
Additional Vaccine Opportunities
Beyond the vaccination opportunities through the school district, there are a variety of ways to get vaccinated, including:

How to Prepare for Your Vaccine Appointment:
Bring documentation to confirm your age. (state, federal, or tribal issued ID, birth certificate, school ID, or any official document containing your name and age)
Get consent for vaccination. Unless emancipated, children under age 18 must receive consent from a parent, guardian, or another authorized adult. Generally, the vaccine clinic will require signed paperwork or verbal consent.
Wear clothing with easy access to arms. We recommend wearing short sleeves or sleeves that can be rolled up.
Plan for the wait. With many people getting vaccinated, wait times may vary. Bring a book, device, or other item/activity to help pass the time.
How many shots are needed to be fully vaccinated?
Two shots of the Pfizer vaccine are required to be fully vaccinated, with the second dose administered 21 days (about 3 weeks) or more after the first dose.
Are the vaccines different for children and adults?
Children ages 5-11 receive a dose made for younger ages. Children ages 12-17 can receive the same Pfizer dose as adults. Only individuals ages 18 and older can receive the other vaccines, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna. However, all vaccines will equally protect you from COVID-19.
Are there side effects from the vaccine?
Possibly. Some may have a sore arm, fever, headache, or feel tired for a couple of days, which is normal as the body builds immunity. Some people do not experience side effects at all.
